Chocolate Chip Cookies (With A Rockstar Twist)


chocolate chip cookie recipe Cookies are always a favorite of mine to bring around to BBQs and casual parties. They are easy. They transport well. Plus ⎯you can fill them with a lot of rockstar ingredients (like chia seeds)…..and they still taste great too. In addition to the nutritional punch, what makes these cookies special to me is the potpourri of vanilla, freshly grated nutmeg, cinnamon and allspice. It really takes the uniqueness of these cookies to the next level. I’m tucking these into my suitcase for the holiday weekend. Hope you have a great one.
